in three years, sitting down with nbc's david gregory this morning to talk about the fiscal cliff. >> i'm arguing for maintaining tax cuts for 98% of americans. i don't think anybody would consider that some liberal left wing agenda. that used to be considered a republican mainstream agenda. >> joining me senator olympia sn snowe of maine. let me start with that. it does seem sort of counter intuitive to have republicans wanting to fight for tax hikes for no one and in that fight, being willing to allow tax hikes for everyone? >> you know, i would agree with that. obviously it is important to make sure that middle income america does not confront a tax increase at the beginning of next year, which is less than two days away. that is critical. the second part is, of course, is trying to address the spending cuts that are going to be crucial next year as well. more for the long-term debt reduction that i think republicans are talking about, but the bottom line is, we should pass this tax extension for middle income america before we adjourn this year. >> and what is -- what do you -- wher

of what the president said, that interview with david gregory was taped yesterday. they described it as discordant remarks based on the fact harry reid and mitch mcconnell were working at it and continue to do so with their top staff and the representatives as well. where are we? i have been told there's movement from both sides that is considered constructive. it's not something they are ready to bring forward. we won't get incredible details until members get briefed. when you look at what's happening inside the room things like what threshold should taxes become higher or unemployment benefits or other taxes, all the variables. they have to decide and gauge will their membership also agree. it's a really important two-step. to give you a sense of how members are preparing themselves for what may come, here is lindsey graham who was on television earlier this morning. >> exceedingly good. i think people don't want to go over the cliff. i think what have we accomplished, political victory to the president. hats off to him. he's going to get tax rate increases, maybe not at 250, b
with david gregory today, and that will appear on "meet the press" tomorrow. he came out with certain words for lawmakers in terms of getting something done before the all important january 1st deadline. take a listen. >> the american people are watching what we do here. obviously their patience is already thin. this is deja vu all over again. america wonders why it is that in this town for some reason, you can't get something done in an organized timetable. why everything has to always wait to the last minute. now we are at the last minute. and the american people are not going to have any patience for a politically self inflicted wound to our economy. >> this is a tactic that president has used before. to rally the public. it did work before. but this point, we are less than three days out. it's not clear it's having an impact. if we do in fact go over the fiscal cliff, there will be plenty of blame to go around, the poles show that most of the blame will be on republicans. however president obama is the commander in chief, so he will undoubtedly get some of the blame as well. there's a l
and urged them to get behind his plans. again today he sat down with david gregory, of course, during that exclusive interview on "meet the press" and urged republicans to act saying that it appears all they are interested in is protecting taxes for wealthy americans. republicans, by the way, lashed out at those comments saying the president seems more interested in placing blame instead of actually leading, but that at this point in time seems to be president obama's strategy to some extent, publicly pressuring republicans to act and to move on these negotiations. so that is where this stands right now. the white house monitoring everything that's going on the hill quite closely, but i can tell you, melissa, that there is a sense of optimism that is waning here at the white house. you can sense that when you talk to the officials here. >> well, the eternal optimist. vice president joe biden apparently dropped by the white house today. do you know if he and the president have spoken? >> reporter: well, he is here at the white house so he is, of course, a big part of these negotiations
, julian. something the president told david gregory on "meet the press" this weekend. take a listen. >> should we have an armed guard at every skol. then ra told me that could work. >> i'm not going to prejudge the recommendations given to me. i am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. >> so, julian, does the fiscal cliff battle give you any faith that we can have a rational debate on anything as divisive as gun control? >> well, i think it depends, and i think what the president was saying was, one, that the nra's arguments on self-defense, the need for more gun prosecutions are not credible. and second, that he can't do this on his own. if we're going to have serious change on gun policy, we need to have a national movement akin to the national movement to change public opinion on the iraq war. congress should bring the victims of newtown up to capitol hill who would be willing to call for serious changes in gun policy. i think shows like this show have to focus on the fact we have a new toub that occurs in this country every single day. 30 americans on a

president obama did with david gregory he taped it yesterday afternoon at the very same honor that mcconnell was actually trying to get a deal done. so to me, the president actually wants an argument more than a deal. he could have been helpful and instrumental in getting things done every six months to go through a budget crisis with president obama, he could figure out a way to lead and bring people together earlier. they can't call in mitch mcdonnell until the 26th and complain he was there at the last minute. i think there's a lot to be done to improve legislative affairs at the white house and would ultimately help president obama. >> and said about that, but mcconnell is still is late, he could have imposed himself, and not the way he does it. here is the fundamental problem. leaving aside the policy issue which i know is important to you all. if i get down to politics on bumper stickers, you're holding all of this up, including people's tax cuts it defend millionaires, that's all we have to say. >> and the democrats all agree that the bush tax cuts were the-- were good for the economy

. the president said on david gregory's show "meet the press" yesterday i'm willing to compromise and quoting directly here, i'm willing to compromise on chain cpi. i know a lot of folks in my own party, the president speaking here, may be upset with that but i am open to that. that came directly from the president. >> as part of a larger deal, though, as part of a grand bargain. we're not talking a grand bargain here. all we're trying to do, admiral sestak, is get something done. >> i think you are absolutely right. the correct tone is robert's, though, that we do need a bipartisan compromise even on this first step. this is not the grand bargain. >> everyone knows that. do you hear those people, those average americans just there? the senator called it a national embarrassment. is there a point at which public pressure or just sheer embarrassment is going to get something moving? >> you're absolutely right. this is an embarrassment. the fact that we don't have the political courage in washington, d.c. to generate the political will to do what is right, i believe the next step is this. we're
think would be helpful, you know, the president has talked this morning again on david gregory about the $1 trillion in cost reductions that he offered speaker boehner over the last couple of weeks. none of y'all have ever asked him to my knowledge, for a list of specifics but maybe if he would give us those specifics now, we could use those as part of these negotiations. i've never seen those. i don't think they really exist. as a matter of fact, i'm pretty sure they don't exist. but so we are in a situation though -- this is all high drama, i realize. i think that leader mcconnell is having a pretty fruitful conversation with vice president biden and hopefully over the course of the next short period of time, will come up with a resolution that's different than taxing the wealthy to spend all the money right now. if we can do that maybe something goodwill co will come t another way to do this would bring a bill up on the floor and begin debating t that is what we are hired to do and be a much better process -- >> with rrngts i know you agree with me, you guys are hired to do a lot
with david gregory yesterday talking about guns. let's come back and we'll quickly talk about it. >> here's the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so, this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. with public opinion, there's nothing you can't do, and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. >> so, i like that because it's a recognition of the facts, which is that politicians tend to be a reactive, rather than a proactive species, even the president of the united states. so, let's talk about his public opinion point. where is public opinion? it's moved a little bit on guns, but how much has it moved? >> marginally. you saw pew had their poll out where it went from like 42% to 49% -- >> in terms of people supporting stricter -- >> right, exactly. >> yeah. >> so, it's marginal in the change, but i think coming back to that point of where members of congress are and what their constituents want from them, you know, republicans in the house have strong nra backing, st

them on amtrak, and to another point that when david gregory talked to the president, asked him about his legislative priorities going forward into the next term, he didn't proactively mention gun control. it was sort of added in the discussion afterwards. i think we come back to the question of whether there's a political will to go beyond the rhetoric and have real legislation. >> president obama will have be to willing to spend a long time on this, and all -- probably all of his political capital and just it's going to be a slog. that was what we got from "meet the press" yesterday. it's just clear he knows this is going to be a slog, and he needs people, the american people, to be on his side, or else it's just not going to happen. the media coverage, like you said, has already dropped off. it's not going to continue unless there's a public outrage. >> absolutely. you know he has the rett cal skill to do it. if the president puts his rett cal skill and weight behind it, at least we can keep the discussion going. we have an important thing we need to do, because jimmy williams, tod

overhang into next year when president obama outlined yesterday on "meet the press" for david gregory his top five priorities for 2013. this makes it much harder, makes that much harder to do something on guns, to do something on immigration, to do real tax reform, to do infrastructure spending. now he has to deal with all the coming calamities, the new cliffs that are going to set up, even if there is some sort of a deal tonight. >> yeah, and don't forget, guys, we've also got the continuing resolution that expires early next year. that means you'd face the prospect of a government shutdown and you've got this debt ceiling fight, and that means you face the prospect of a default on the national debt. those are very serious things and we're going to be dealing with them over the next couple of months, and people are feeling very bruised and burned here. i think the tone going into those negotiations is just awful. >> mm-hmm. >> you know, you look -- look, the president's party got an expanded presence in the house this last election. they got an expanded majority in the senate. he won big
